The score reflects the situation of DC movies very well. If Zimmer, like Snyder, continued, the result may not please everyone. A lot of people were unhappy with Snyder's work in the genre, just as many fans of soundtrack were with Zimmer's contributions that never followed the path taken by all the other composers who came before him.<br><br>The two left (regardless of the reason that led them to do this).<br><br>When Zimmer left everyone knew that XL would not hold the pressure or that the result would not be satisfactory for most.<br><br>When Elfman and Whedon were announced we all knew that they were hired to go against everything DC has done before to try to reach the first film of the franchise to reach 1 billion. Even if they were to follow Marvel's script and drop their originality.<br><br>But the hiring of Elfman and Whedon shows that the studio was long lost. Snyder succumbed to BvS. The only salvation for the DCEU are the solo films like Wonder Woman, the next Batman, Aquaman ...and freedom. Freedom for the directors, composers... Warner has always had this advantage over Marvel.@Edmund <br>Given the chance I think Junkie probably could deliver a pretty fun score that stayed thematically consistent with the current universe. It all depends on what the studio/director wants out of the music. The biggest disappointment to me is that this was a huge missed opportunity to do a heroic take on Zimmerís Superman theme, something we havenít heard since MoS. Hell, even the trailers did that.... -_-rumor has it Lorne Balfe did this score<br><br>I guess if we do not get any credits then that proves it<br>======================================<br><br>Oh, absolutely! I'm sure we will soon find out that Balfe also scored Star Wars and Titanic. And Harry Potter. And Indiana Jones.Edmund, I somewhat agree - I've seen very little from Junkie to make me think this would have been a groundbreaking, wonderful score. However, maybe it's the Zimmer fan in me, but I would have loved to hear "stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place" in this score. So many scenes begged for just that. Compositionally it doesn't make for an interesting soundtrack or film score, I agree, but I would be willing to sacrifice that for thematic continuity.I certainly understand the criticisms leveled at Elfman's JL score, but I'm not at all convinced Junkie would have been a better option. I've never been too convinced by him anyway (Mad Max was a situation where his sound happened to be a good fit, but even then I think a better composer could have made much more out of the same ingredients). And since anything worthwhile in the previous two (and yeah, I'm aware I like MoS and BvS waaaaaaaay less than the average reader of this site) ended up being by Hans anyway, I really doubt Junkie flying solo would have been up to much. My guess is he would have pulled out stock, barely-altered reprises of Zimmer's themes all over the place without adding much new material on his own, which would have satisfied the DC fans more than what Elfman did, sure, but would have been a lot less interesting as a score album. I mean, say what you want about the questionable thematic decisions Elfman made, the two gigantic full-length action cues are pretty solid in and of themselves. I'll take that over Junkie letting the drums pound for eleven minutes straight, any day of the week.
The studio is the music owner now.There you go. So we probably will never get to hear what Tom planned/did for this movie. I really believe that it would've been great compared to the generic score we got. <br>Only two tracks stood out to me and only one was an actual cue from the movie.Gabriel Yared leaked his Troy back in 2004 but I think he got in quite a lot of trouble for that. There's a reason he hasn't done too many high profile films since then, I think. A few rejecteds have slipped out over the years but it's pretty unheard of for the composer himself to be the one to leak it I think, that would be career suicide if they got caught. Usually they come out the same way complete scores do, some anonymous person working on the scoring team probably did it.and Zimmer criticized Elfman...back and forth, etc. So what? The movie is lame, the score is about as lame as Bat V Sup@JBSO99 you're right. It's so big and widely spread.<br><br>And you're right about me forgetting those score. I just picked these three because Elfman critized Zimmer
@Iamtommie  You forgot the theme by Elliot Goldenthal for Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, for not to mention the theme from the 60's TV show and all the themes for all the different animated motion pictures such as The Dark Knight Returns, Mask of the Phantasm, or the videogames like the Arkham series.<br><br>Batman's musical legacy is very big so him saying there is only one theme and his the one he created is really disrespectful to a big amount of composers.Yeah, that's what I thought you meant. And that's what Elfman should have done if he wanted to use the old themes.I think what Elfman said is not true.<br>Batman has different themes for different movies because every Batman is different.<br><br>Michael Keaton as Batman: Elfman's Theme<br>Christian Bale as Batman: Hans' Theme<br>Ben Affleck as Batman: Hans & Junkie's Theme.<br>Of course much more but the most important.<br><br>Each one if dies Batman's have a different story and a different universe. I think that for each universe a new theme is the best thing you can do. With a different theme you can relate more to this Batman than a previous one.<br><br>By the way, I think TDK, MoS & WW are 3 of the top 10 themes by Zimmer. I think what Elfman did the WW theme is an abomination. He removed the key instrument in the theme because he thought it was childisch.<br><br>I think the Justce League score is way worse than previous DCEU or Batman movies. I hope that Lorne of Junkie will do future DCUE movies instead of Elfman.<br><br>(Seeing Justice League thursday. I am curious if it is really that bad as everyine says)GITS was unreleased, JXL's JL score was completely rejected. The real qustion is how many rejected scores have leaked in the history of modern film scoring?Ghost in a thing that doesn't have life but does
Which score would that be?Seeing as how Lorne Balfe ďleakedĒ his own score, I wonder if Tom could easily do the same?Haha - honestly though, before I realized this I felt Jablonsky didn't really bind the score together that well with themes and motifs. This is a pretty cool connection and I'm glad he made it.Almost like this was a film score or something! ;)I don't suppose you have credits for this score, Hybrid?

@ Norm

Opening Titles is main theme for the entire game, which is later broken down to sub-varients of the theme through-out the game and in the soundtrack.

Mr. Zimmer, is there any chance of getting on a CD? i am one of those people of the dying breed that like to hear music as it was recorded( lossless/ uncompressed). As an excellent composer of music, i am sure you understand the problem that compressed MP3 and AAC have. i would like the modern warefare 2 soundtrack to be released on CD so that i can listen to it in full sonic fidelity.

Jeff, End Credits is exactly Extraction Point. Only charge theme is little different, here is playing in full version, which is advantage for sure.

Levente reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-05 00:00:00
I had my chance to listen this new version and I have to tell that some tracks are a bit different than in the game.

But here is what i have got, to clear some tracks:

"Extraction Point" this is the second half of the End Credits.

"Breach" this is during the Gulag, but it is a new mix, not from the game, but I think sometimes when you are alredy in the Gulag prison and have to go through all the levels deep down.

"Guerrilla Tactics" it is when you try to escape Rojas, it is right at the beginning when that passenger airplane passes almost over you.

"Infiltration" when you are ordered to shoot down the Russian soldiers with the Javelins and after that, you have to shoot out the Russian armored vehicles with you Javelin, to help with the escape.

"Espirit De Corps" this is indeed during the "Cliffhanger" game but not in this from. This is a new mix.

"Retreat And Reveille" The first part is after you infiltrate Site Hotel Bravo, when Price says "Go Loud!". But the second part is a mixture with another track.

"Ordinance" is a mixture of two tracks. The knife scene at the end and from the "Remember...No Russian" part.

"Onwards" this piece is from exactly when you enter in to the Gulag with the help of the helicopters. During that you have to sniper out some enemy guys.

"Code of Conduct" is played on The Enemy of My Enemy, in the airplane graveyard.

"Chain of Command" used in the 2The Enemy of My Enemy is My Friend" but the first 20-30 seconds are different, nut sure from where.

"Deadline" the first seconds is on the submarine yes, but the rest is when you go aournd the oil rig and the Russians know you are there.

"Coup De Grace" not just when Roach and Ghost gets burned but also, when you see all the Russian airplanes and parachutes in the game "Wolverines!"

I made a mistake:

"Code of Conduct" is played on The Enemy of My Enemy, in the airplane graveyard. This is good.

"Chain of Command" this is not in the game.

Richard reply Replies: 0 || 2010-06-05 00:00:00
@Levente

"Chain of Command" is actually an extended version of a small "Cliffhanger" action cue (cliffhanger_stealth_busted from the game rip). Everything else looks good, though.
